You need to build your coaching skills and your ability to help all kinds of clients, from the inside out. Make sure you spend some time every week — every day is ideal — honing your skills as a coach or working on your own beliefs and personal outlook on life.

They are inspired to tackle something because they are made to believe that they can succeed. A great leader will affirm that someone has a great idea, or validate the dream of accomplishment, or plant a seed to nurture; they will support, steer, and nourish. Next is the ability to provide empowerment to employees.

Great leaders understand that they don’t have all the answers, they understand that collaboration is the key to success, and they understand that a more equitable power dynamic is necessary to have continuous movement forward.

Some athlete seriously considers to quit a sport that they are really talented in and could make a living out of, because of their most closest people like their parents or coaches. While I was reading through “The Power of a Coach” section of the book what I noticed was that some of the events that happened in the book, happened to me and my close friends as well. Some of the events happened during my soccer practices and some happened to me during track practices.

Another strength is the problem solving ability, which enables me to recognize the problem, analyze the relevant information, understand reasons and impact relationships and choose the best solution to solve the problem. However, there are some weaknesses that I need to overcome.
According to Tracy Huber (2008, 1) “A teacher’s most essential job is to help students gain and retain knowledge —to take true ownership of what they have learned.” Through this quote we can interpret that learners need support such as concrete manipulatives to perform the necessary task in order to grasp the concepts. However concrete manipulatives have an important part to play in a learners schooling life especially towards maths. In my essay below I will explain the conceptual and procedural knowledge, the history of manipulatives, my understanding of concrete manipulatives, ways in which manipulatives can support students, how manipulatives help students gain conceptual knowledge and how a grade 3 teacher can teach Cuisenaire rods in equivalent
